In August 2019 the first cohort of five Professionals Program Planners and Schedulers joined RPV and they are now 18 months into the 24-month program.

Below are some testimonials from the cohort which highlight their experiences and benefits of the Program. Download the brochure above to read more.

“In the 2-year program I developed real ‘on the job’ project planning skills on real world projects of a truly global scale.”

“I am grateful to be working on an important infrastructure project with a brilliant team. I have the freedom to make my own judgements and at the same time I have the support and guidance from experienced planners.”

“The Professionals Program gave me an opportunity to step sideways from Project Managing to Project Planning into a career that is more aligned with my interests.”

“The major benefit of this program is the high quality of education that we receive, not only in the module sessions, but during the various team workshops & meetings. The planning team at RPV is greatly experienced and demonstrate a strong desire to research & implement best practises from around the globe. This gives me confidence that the knowledge and practises taught here will put me in the best position to grow my planning skills to a high standard.”
